Severe Weather Preparation week is now

Posted by wlpo on February 28, 2016

It seems we’re in a “tug of war” between winter and spring.

But, the National Weather Service is declaring this week “Severe Weather Preparedness Week” in Illinois. The National Weather Service says to increase your awareness of severe thunderstorms, hail, tornados, flash flooding, lightning and heavy rainfall. It might be a good time to review your safety rules for home, work, school, church or on the road.

If you’re a decision maker at a large facility, it’s time to ensure if you have adequate means to monitor approaching bad weather and sufficient enough shelter. A statewide tornado drill will be held at 10am Tuesday. Additional tips can be found at
